Gong Intensive

A workshop via the Zoom network for those who want to enhance their Gong Practice

offered by Richard Rudis (Sonam Dorje)


Full Spectrum Vibrational Healing


Gong Bath is a dynamic meditative concert which acoustically guides each participant via harmonic overtones into realms of spiritual well-being and emotional balance, cellular healing. 

This is accomplished using a multitude of octaves, carefully constructed, to entice the brain into 

Alpha/ Theta/ Delta wave-scapes of creativity, relaxation and enrichment.


The focus of this workshop is to expand, enhance and

support Gong practice as a sacred sound instrument for healing, meditation and exploration of consciousness.
